Scientific Programs

Versiti investigators have made significant discoveries leading to improved diagnosis and care of patients.

Scientific Programs


Scientific research and training are important parts of Versiti’s mission. Our research programs involve basic and clinical scientists at Versiti Blood Research Institute (VBRI), facilitating opportunities to identify and engage in collaborative translational research.

Versiti Diagnostic Laboratories and the blood services team provide opportunities for collaboration in the development and use of diagnostic tests and access to blood samples and related databases. Versiti scientists lead and participate in national and international clinical studies and have made important contributions to the understanding of basic biological mechanisms that impact blood-related treatments and disorders.

 
Transfusion Medicine & Cellular Therapy
We study biology and pathology of blood vessels, blood and blood cells and design ways to repair or replace them when damaged.
 
Thrombosis & Hemostasis
We study the properties of blood that cause it to clot. Our findings help to treat diseases that cause blood clots or excessive bleeding.
 
Stem Cell Biology
We study blood cell development and its regulation in health and disease. Once we know what’s broken, we can design strategies to fix.
 
Immunobiology
We study the development and function of the immune system and design immunomodulating therapies for infection, autoimmune disease, and cancer.
 
Translational Hematology
Improving care of patients with blood diseases by translating discoveries and researching treatments.
